Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Opening at the 7-level
Junior Europeans in Poland 2013. East picks up AKQT9 AKQ A AKQ5 as dealer. Many took their first (?) chance at opening 7NT and did hit Jxx of spades and three low clubs in dummy. With clubs breaking, 13 tricks were easy. Several pairs reached the slightly better 7. http ...
